Domaine Tollot Beaut

Tollot-Beaut is a northern Côte de Beaune specialist with important holdings in Chorey-lès-Beaune, Corton, Aloxe-Corton, Savigny-lès-Beaune and Beaune.

The wines are superb, reliable and smartly packaged, this being the work of three cousins: Nathalie Tollot on the commercial side with Jean-Paul and Olivier on production. They represent the sixth generation of the family here and even their address is Rue Alexandre Tollot. The distance to their vines is a throwback to how far their forbears could easily travel in a horse and cart! The Tollots were trailblazers too when they started to bottle their own wines in 1921, being among the first domaines to do so (in those days most burgundy was bottled by merchants, either locally or abroad). Today, the slow descent of the service lift, with Nathalie carrying her pipette and basketful of glasses, is a ritual precursor to our tastings at the domaine. You emerge into extensive, dark cellars where the stacks of oak barrels wax and wane according to the generosity of each harvest. Photogenic mould-encrusted bottles mature gently in their bins. “Eighty per cent of the work is done in the vineyard,” says a smiley Nathalie, and the resulting wines – including their signature Chorey-lès-Beaune ‘Pièce du Chapitre’ – have twice been extremely well received at tastings conducted by her in Shrewsbury.

Vintage guide

The region basked under the summer sun in 2022, and thanks to cool nights the wines have avoided excess alcohol while retaining elegance, it all looks very promising. The 2021 vintage was severely affected by frost in the spring which means yields are historically low, the wines are fresh and juicy. 2020 was one of the earliest vintages on record following a warm summer but the wines have an appealing freshness too, like a combination of the previous two vintages. There was an absence of frost in 2019 but yields were still restricted, this time by drought, the resulting wines have great richness and concentration. A very good vintage in 2018 with no frosts in the early part of the season though rain in the first half of summer caused some disease pressure. Hail affected Nuits St-Georges and the Hautes-Côtes reducing yields. The resulting wines are rich and concentrated. Quantities in 2017 will be better than 2016 with equally good results. They are more red fruited than black, showing great elegance. 2016 proved a rollercoaster of a season with everything thrown at the growers in the early season but what fruit survived through to harvest is very good. Quantities, however, are small. 2015 is a memorable vintage for red Burgundy, certainly on the rich side. The red wines of 2014 are more ‘classic’, have a great combination of red and black fruits as well as being charmingly approachable in their youth. After a late start and a cool summer, a dry September saved the day in 2013, the Pinot being light but very pure.
